Chemical Processes & Instrument Development: Laboratory Studies

CIMS lab
CRDS lab
CSD laboratories for CRDS instruments.

Studies in the laboratory focus primarily on the fundamental processes that occur in the atmosphere via the characterization of the chemical and physical properties of atmospheric trace species. Scientists develop experimental methods to measure the reactivity and photochemistry, as well as, the optical and physical properties of stable, transient, and radical species. Our laboratory instruments are used in combination to develop a more comprehensive picture for a specific species or process.
